Khuga dam


Khuga dam near Mata village is a multi-purpose project located to the south of Churachandpur town (Manipur), India. The project, which will supply electricity and water, was started in 1983 and resumed in 2002 after being at a standstill for a period of time.

The Khuga dam has already created a beautiful artificial lake at the southern tip of Lamka town near Mata village. It is one of the most beautiful artificial lakes of North-East India, comparable to Barapani (Umium) lake at Shillong. The dam site is just 7 km south of Lamka town; it has become a favourite picnic spot for local residents.
